Sense Scotland works with children and adults who have communication support needs because of deafblindness, sensory impairment, learning or physical disability. They lead the field in communication and innovative support services for people who are marginalised because of communication difficulties, challenging behaviour, health care requirements and/or complex support needs.
Their services are designed to provide choice and continuity across age groups and aim to work closely with families and colleagues from health, education and social work. This approach reflects the Scottish Governments Personalisation agenda, putting individuals firmly in the driving seat; working together to provide a system of care and support that is designed with the full involvement of individual service users and carers, tailoring support to meet their own unique needs.
